The campus is clean and tidy making it feel very warm and inviting, it has an amazing night life with a buzzing town around it and local towns offering good night life. The help from applying all the way up to first year has been really inviting . Support is a big thing at this university.

really enjoyed my time at bucks uni. lecturers are mostly supportive when it comes to getting help and there’s always something going on in the student union, i really liked the fact that there was a lot of different societies and i even had a chance to join a horse riding society in my final year which i really enjoyed and make it easier to balance my studies as well as having time to socialise.

Attending an aviation course at Buckinghamshire New University (BNU) has ended my career.  I am one of around 100 students (past and present) who have suffered at the hands of BNU because of their corrupt relationships with partner organisations.  I have uncovered extremely disturbing and burdening truths about this serious matter and therefore I have huge doubts about the legality of current links with BNU's partner organisations!!  BNU are reluctant to acknowledge (and apologise for) the very serious mistakes they have made, even though most senior staff at BNU are very a

The teachers and tutors aren't very supportive when it comes to written work, and only read through something once if they have time to, even if you've asked for help weeks in advance of the due date. It's quite a selfish course, they help their favourites and if you're not one of them then they will take their time helping you.

First year work is tough . You keep yourself sane by keep repeating to yourself "first year doesn't count" but when you get those results back in July and you've achieved a 2:1 you feel great . The work is a mixture of practical and theory assignments . We make films we write essays but we don't have exams which makes life a lot easier .

This module at first seemed irrelevant and boring but it turned out to be so memorable and looked complicated but actually was very easy. The exam was easy for everyone and was an easy first to get. The teacher was really lovely even though some students had given her a hard time. She had left on maternity leave and I hope she returns to teach other students.

As with all modules it was taught by a wonderful lecturer who went above and beyond to engage with all of us.
Coursework was split into 4 tasks over the year, each split into 4 areas for a team of students to complete. These covered the entirety of the software development life-cycle and taught all necessary skills and knowledge for professional application.
